And the only way lead tape might help that is if the increased swing weight causes you to slow down the release in your swing. So couldn't hurt to try but yo should really check your impact location first (foot powder spray).
No the lead tape will not lower the c.g. enough to do anything (unless you add so much that the head becomes unplayable due to being way too heavy).

The concept is valid (IF you are getting good center face contact), but the problem is that you are limited with how much change you can accomplish with the lead tape. It's really not a lot. Significant changes of that type really has to come from larger design changes.

My swing speed is right around 98. And I am carrying the ball about around 230. Nothing scientific behind ball being too high, other than eye test. But it just seems the ball is going very high, coming down soft and not getting much roll.

Not really. For moving weight, you'd likely have to get up into the 12-15 gm range even for some very small changes. For adding, probably takes more like 20-25 gm.
